Silicones, which consist of a backbone chain of a combination of silicon (Si) and oxygen (O), are highly functional materials possessing both inorganic and organic characteristics. Silicone has unlimited potential for producing highly functional materials by using compounding technologies to add new functions – especially by combining it with other materials. Shin-Etsu Chemical Co., Ltd. began producing silicone in 1953 and currently develops over 5,000 products, now holding the No. 1 domestic sales share. The company anticipates their participation in nano tech 2017 to offer the opportunity to provide solutions for many of their visitors’ needs.
